irish "cream"??

i am not much of a drinker but one thing i miss INCREDIBLY as a vegan is baileys irish cream. so, i started wondering if it would be possible to create a vegan version and did a bit of googling and came up with this:

Better Than Bailey's Irish Cream'   (vegan)


This recipe was sent in by Mark Olsen.
"Make yummy Irish Cream for about 1/3 the cost of the 'real' one! Apart from being
delicious it's also suitable for vegans and those who are lactose intolerant."
You will need:
     1 tin         coconut milk
     2 tbs        brown sugar
     2 tbs        chocolate topping
     2 tsp        vanilla essence
     3/4 cup    whisky (or to taste!)
Method:
     Combine all ingredients thoroughly using a whisk, but do not froth. Keep
     refrigerated, preferably in a dark bottle. Old 'Bailey's' bottles are ideal!
Note:
     If your coconut has separated into solid and liquid, be sure to mix or blend
     thoroughly first into a completely smooth liquid with no lumps. Experiment with
     different brands as applicable.

has anybody ever tried this before? how similar is it to non vegan irish cream and is it even worth the effort to prepare? thanks in advance!
